Fall from height injury claims

ladder injury at work claims

Fall from height injury claims are a common type of case we have represented people for over the many years we’ve been fighting for the rights of personal injury victims.

They can typically occur in the workplace but there are other circumstances where people can make a claim for personal injury compensation when injured from a fall from height. The injuries victims can suffer from can be severe which is why it’s important for victims to know their rights.

We may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Falls from height at work

Fall from height injury claims in the workplace is an area of law that we have a great deal of experience in.

Workplace regulations are stringent to avoid these kinds of incidents occurring, but we often see them in the news and publicised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) when they issue fines. Despite the law being clear, and despite the HSE having the power to issue penalties in the millions, accidents still happen.

In many instances, an accident comes down to a simple lack of appreciation for the danger. It may be employees being asked to access something at height without proper equipment or training. It may be that employees have access to areas at height and have fallen through rooflights or unstable walkways. Employees should not be exposed to dangers that can lead to a fall from height, and if they are, they may have a valid claim for workplace compensation.

Fall from height injury claims in general

Fall from height injury claims can arise from non-work incidents as well.

An organisation that owns or occupies a building has a legal duty to ensure that visitors are safe from danger. Councils and local authorities also have duties to prevent citizens being exposed to dangers. It often comes down to what reasonable steps have been taken – and are required – in order to protect people from harm.

If you visit a shop and fall from height because a railing is broken, you may have a case. It could be that you fall through a defective floor or walkway, and that’s caused the injury.
